Happy Columbus Day, Get outside and find something!
iPhone Geocaching the outdoor treasure-hunting game in which we participants use the GPS receiver built into our 3G iPhones to hide and seek geocaches. There is a hidden world all around us, with treasure, trinkets, coins and bugs to find.
Step #1 Visit the iTunes app store and grab Groundspeaks New iPhone Geocaching Application,
Step #2 Head over to Groundspeaks website, Geocaching.com and sign up for a free account,
( not required to use the app, but join up to keep track of your finds, and meet folks)
Step #3 Crank up your iPhone Geocaching App, and find a cache! don't let the Muggles catch you!
Step #4 Take a shot of the area & the cache contents with your iPhone, making sure not to give away the location of the hide.
Step #5 Go back to Geocaching.com and log your visit & share your photos, and if you found or did not find the cache.
With hundreds of thousands of caches hidden around the world you are sure to find one nearby. Being that you always have your iPhone with you, next when you find yourself with some extra time on your hands instead of plopping down in from of the television, take your family on a hunt for treasure.
